Great service! This was the first time ever dealing with living trusts and Darin explained the whole process very well. He was available for all questions and concerns, and he has a very good Spanish translator. He is also much more affordable than others places in my area. 100% recommend!

There was an attempt to set up a trust with him. He was relatively responsive but provided very little information. Google provided information and he could barely bother to expand on it.But the one star is for the fact that I had to send the document back and forth with him multiple times because he couldn’t bother to check the spellings of names, locations, etc. He literally had one job… to fill out his template ($3100 cost) and he couldn’t even care enough to do that properly. What good is a contracts lawyer who is not detail oriented?I never finished my trust with him so I asked him for a will a couple months later and of course there is no response. Why are there so many good reviews? There was no part of this process that was remotely positive except the hours before he collected his $3100 fee for his several minutes of work.

Not ever doing a trust before I thought it would be a long expensive process. Darin created a comprehensive trust for myself and husband in a very timely manner and at a fair price. He responded to our inquiry and all questions within hours. Based the completed trust, you can see Daring is highly experienced and knowledgeable. He sent a notary to us to notarize all documents which made it stress free. Our trust is now complete and we know our family will be well taken care of.

Best experience with an attorney yet. Darin was prompt, helpful and very knowledgeable about setting up an estate trust. He answered emails after hours and was diligent about communicating with lawyers from other states. I highly recommend his firm and his entire staff was wonderful.

My wife and I tried to do our Trust ourselves five years ago with the Suze Orman DIY trust plan. Come to find out, the trust was incomplete because we did it absolutely wrong and was in jeopardy of leaving our family vulnerable.We contacted the Karpel Law firm and IMMEDIATELY not only did we get a response, but also in little of no time we received an extensive and comprehensive and easy-to-follow Trust for us to review. After our feedback, we received another IMMEDIATE response that included a fully completed trust. The difference between the DIY trust and our Karpel Law firm Trust was night and day.Thank you Karpel Law firm. You are absolutely the best. I give you my highest recommendation.p.s. Oh, and they were about $1,000 less expensive than two other law firms that family members recommended. It’s probably because of their efficiency. The Karpel Law firm doesn’t waste time. This, I truly appreciate.

We found Attorney Darin Karpel quite by accident when we needed an urgent will and trust created for a family member who became suddenly very ill. In a great time of need, Darin responded to our call immediately and handled our case swiftly and efficiently and with the greatest of professionalism, providing documents the same day. He quickly responded to our every concern and also walked us through the process following our loved one's death. We would highly recommend he and his team to anyone needing legal services.

Darin Karpel was recommended to me to take care of my estate planning. He did an outstanding job at a very reasonable price. I was very pleased w/ the work done. He also guided me through the process of handling my brother's estate when he died of Covid in 2020. Also an outstanding job.
